Genetic Hearing Loss
edited by Patrick J. Willems

Genetic Hearing Loss describes the normal development of the ear, updates the classification and epidemiology of hearing loss, and surveys the usage of audiometric tests and diagnostic medical examinations.

Features:

  • Describes the normal development of the ear
  • Updates the classification and epidemiology of hearing loss
  • Surveys the usage of audiometric tests and diagnostic medical examinations
  • Illuminates the most important syndromes associated with hearing loss such as Usher, Pendred, and Waardenburg syndromes
  • Discusses the maternal inheritance patterns of mitochondrial hearing loss
  • Provides a roadmap to gene localization and isolation in nonsyndromic hearing loss, exploring connexins, tectorins, myosins, ion channels, and other disease genes
  • Highlights otosclerosis, one of the most common types of hearing loss
  • Considers mechanisms regulating hair cell differentiation and regeneration
  • Elucidates the future of genetic testing for hearing loss
